  • Good surnames for twins in a story?

    I’m writing a story, and two of the characters happen to be twins: a boy and girl. Does anyone know of any good surnames for twins, because I don’t know if it’s just me, but twins always seem to have catching surnames in movies and books. Like in riverdale, a tv series, there was the ‘Blossom’ twins.

  • Is it politically incorrect to say "Brown hand" in a story?

    "Clare chuckled, dropping five coins into her brown hand." Is this politically incorrect? What should I say instead? The character is also Jamaican, so should I say "black hand" instead? Thanks.

  • Where does a writer, who wants to make a living from their work, start this journey?

    Best answer: You do your own research -- your niche markets are going to be different than anyone else's especially since you're all over the board on your focus.

    Best answer: You do your own research -- your niche markets are going to be different than anyone else's especially since you're all over the board on your focus. Songs go to one niche, poetry (a declining art) is either self published or finding little response in the book publishing industry lately. Kids stories are divided by age, each type (picture books, readers, young adult, etc.) are all having their own market and most would need the writer to sell through an agent unless they wish to self publish.

    Go to the library. In the reference section are the key books you need. Writers Market 2018, Children's Writers & Illustrations Market 2018, Poet's Market 2018, etc. Those books not only tell you how to submit material, they also have lists of publishers, magazines, agents, etc. to connect with.

    Online writers help is there for any who need it.
    Here's one for kids books. http://www.dummies.com/education/languag...

    I’m currently writing a story, but I’m stuck on a scene that I don’t quite know how to describe. The scene I’m trying to explain is the first time I’ve used my awaken super speed (kinda like the flash) except my super power includes, super speed, super strength, super agility, enhanced physical abilities. And I just woke up from a 9 month coma. So the scene I’m trying to describe is me walking down the street, and I see a little girl crossing the street but a truck doesn’t look like it’s slowing down and it’s about to crush that little girl. And so I need help on describing me using my super speed to save the little girl?

  • Seeing how ridiculously popular Harry Potter is, is everyone a fool for not copying the formula?

    Here’s the formula btw: A contemporary fantasy novel, starring an average, relatable person, who hates their life.

    Here’s the formula btw: A contemporary fantasy novel, starring an average, relatable person, who hates their life. They have to have a ‘humbling loss’ in their past, which is the ‘inciting incident’, inspiring their ‘motivation’ (dramatic need), which is to defeat the antagonist who was the cause of their loss. After crossing over into the other realm (they are glad to escape their previous existence) & with the help of the mentor & sidekicks, the protagonist goes through ‘the struggle’ before reaching ‘the metamorphosis’ & then finally defeating the antagonist. Maybe through in a ‘fatal flaw’ for god measure. Have I missed anything integral to HP’s popularity? Why are people writing novels that deviate so much from this formula, including J. K. Rowling herself (with her new creations)? It just doesn’t make sense.
